Ben Reeves

Senior Editor

Games have always been a major part of Ben's entertainment diet. From playing Pac-Man forgeries on a Commodore 64 to scrounging for couch change so he could rent Double Dragon II for the 16th time, games have consumed more hours of his life than any other activity. After graduating with honors from the University of Colorado and receiving a degree in English with a creative writing emphasis, he combined his love for gaming and writing by pursuing a career in game journalism. Before joining Game Informer, Ben worked as in intern in the Avenger's office at Marvel Comics, where he unsuccessfully tried convincing his bosses to let him write a Bullseye comic.
